Scary situation! But Madalyn will only sleep when swaddled!

I read this too, and it makes me annoyed (not with you, with how all the articles are making swaddling in to a controversial thing to do) because this isn't swaddling, it's child abuse. The two have nothing to do with each other.

If done correctly, it's soothing for babies.

Oh for Pete's sake...tying babies up in knots isn't swaddling! I swear no one has any common sense anymore

Pretty much what everyone else said. I swaddled Jacy til she was 9 months with the miracle blanket. She loved it. I stopped with Q at 2 months or earlier because he just hulked out of them anyway. As for these women if it were there own children fine. There were no injuries bit that's not something you should to to someone else child ever.

I'm going to have to agree here. We stopped swaddling William at 5.5 months when he decided he didn't like it anymore (he wouldn't settled until we unwrapped him and he went right to sleep). I swear, the news has to sensationalize everything.
